Little Country Road February 15, 2010

Snow, Wind and Sunset, originally uploaded by pictureapromise.

This is a road less traveled. Follow it straight to the west and you will come to a dead end. A friend of mine lives at the end and to get to anywhere she must travel this road. Fresh snow, and strong winds keep filling up the road with pillow drifts. Some are small and easily driven thru but others are large and sometimes very hard. Hit them hard and fast and you're in trouble.

My life can be like this little country road sometimes. Not too much traffic it seems, the little nuisances of life pile up and can become big trouble. The wind starts to blow more frustrations, hurts and strife in my way. My tendency with this little road is to step on the gas and plow thru those pillow drifts. That's fine until I hit one that is too big and too hard and it sends me into the ditch or maybe i get stuck in it right there in the middle of the road!

The same is true of my life's "road", trying to ram thru those pesky roadblocks may work some of the time but eventually they will either throw me off my course or I'll get stuck right where I am. There is a time a a place for "plowing thru" but sometimes slowing down, using a little caution and praying for help is the best course to take whether you're on this little country road or traveling thru this life.
